South Africa was a very new and unique travel experience for us, including our stay in Cape Town. We were advised to use Cape Town Tour Guide Co. to get around. We've always been independent travelers but decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did! Being small, everything about CTTG was personal and very comfortable. From... More

We recently went to Cape Town as part of a four week African safari / tour. Clive was our guide in Cape Town. He is a natural guide and clearly loves what he does and his home town. Cape Town is a beautiful place and Clive showed us so much in a short two days. He sets up tours to... More

Clive De Bruyne from Cape Town Tour Guide Co. has been the ideal guide for our history department student group visiting South Africa from East Carolina University from 2011 - 2015. We keep going back for more tours and the student numbers increase every year! In addition to organizing incredibly smooth and high caliber transportation, food and accommodation logistics, innovative... More

We went to South Africa on a Summer Study Abroad program with our school to learn about the history of pre and post-apartheid. Clive was absolutely incredible with his knowledge of South Africa. We met Clive as a guide, and said goodbye to a great friend. Clive made this trip epic for everyone on it. I already am trying to... More

Clive is knowledgeable about Cape Town on so many levels; historical, ecological, biological, political, (gastronomic!), that he makes all tours fascinating. I would love to return.

We had one day in Cape Town after flying in from the Eastern Cape. Clive picked us up directly from the airport and adapted the tour to fit our late start. We covered a lot of ground in one day: the Kirstenbosch National Garden, the Boulder Beach penguins, the Cape Point cable car, Chapman's Peak. Clive is very kind and... More

I recently had the beautiful opportunity to experience Cape Town and other areas of South Africa through a historical-maritime lens, thanks to a study abroad program offered at my university and to the never ending knowledge and guidance provided by our tour guide Clive de Bruyne who was there every step of the way. He provided the perfect balance of... More

We chose Clive after looking at other reviews on tripadvisor and we were definitely not disappointed! All correspondance before the tour was informative and timely, and Clive was able to plan an itinery based on what we wanted to see. I also liked that I could pay using PayPal and only half of the tour price was required in advance.... More

Clive is deeply informed about every aspect of his beloved South Africa, and he is willing to speak frankly, sensitively and empathetically about its history and its passage from the trauma of Apartheid to a democratically elected government. His passionate commitment to the beauty and achievements of this country, and his balanced yet optimistic belief in its future are infectious... More

I recently spent two and a half fascinating weeks in South Africa, on a Leakey Foundation tour, led by Clive De Bruyne. He was exceptional as a tour leader and guide, focused every moment on making the trip educational in the highest degree, as well as extremely pleasant and comfortable. We were all impressed with his knowledge of the country,... More
